When a little boy plants a carrot seed, everyone tells him it won't develop. So he waters his seed, and pulls the weeds, and he waits. But when you are actually young, there are some items that you just know, and also the little boy knows that one day a carrot will come up.

Ruth Krauss, author of A Hole Is to Dig, has crafted a story almost Zen-like in its simplicity. Young readers learn that standing your ground in the face of opposition and doubt can often cause twice the reward expected (even thrice the reward, if judging by the girth of this carrot )."His conviction is steadfast, however, and sure enough, a carrot worthy of very first prize at any state fair springs forth from the earth. (Ages 4 to 8) A tiny boy plants a carrot seed and waits patiently, tending to it carefully, while everyone around him insists that"it won't come up. Krauss's husband, Crockett Johnson (creator of Harold and the Purple Crayon) , illustrated The Carrot Seed, and while the little boy is rendered with uncomplicated lines, all of his hope, confidence, and serenity shine through. The image that resonates most strongly in this minimalist tale is the unfaltering faith from the mild-mannered little boy.
